Love Your Village Spring Clean Up in Hoosick Falls
HOOSICK FALLS, N.Y. -- About 200 volunteers turned out for the Love Your Village Spring Clean Up Day in Hoosick Falls Saturday.
They got 50 Church Street, the Kid’s Community Garden, ready for planting, cleaned up and weeded in Wood Park and at The Wood Block, around village churches and more.
They also helped out somesenior residents.
More than 100 students from Hoosick Falls High School and Elementary School (the third grade especially) were working hard under the guidance of Mrs. Burdick, Ms. Ferrinnini and Mrs. Nielson, as well as many who came on their own.
"Participating in the Community Clean-up is always a great experience because you can physically see the impact you’re making in the community. Doing it as the National Honor Society in Miss McGuire’s name as ‘Issy’s Crew’ just made it so much more special because it’s clear how important the community was to her. To be able to give back in a way that would make her proud means the world to us," said Zoey Haar who was there with the HFCS National Honor Society, all proudly sporting their "Issy’s Team" T-shirts.
Also on hand to help out were Mayor Dave Borge, the CEO staff, St. Mark’s and All Saints crews, and many individuals from all parts of the Village.
True Value Hardware for supplyied bags and other supplies.
HAYC3 is proud to have worked with The Village, Mayor Borge and Niel Stowell and all the participants to make this event happen.
